Mr Wright - Ian Wright. Autobiography. Enjoyed it and had a lot of candid stories from his time at Selhurst especially the divide between the older and younger players.

On a wing + a prayer - Steve Coppell biography. Lots of personal accounts from players and staff in and around Steve at his time here like Salako, McGoldrick, Thomas.

I believe Simon Jordan's autobiography on its way soon

Stan Collymore wrote one but it only had one chapter on Palace and rather interesting reinterpretation it is too.

Alan Mullery wrote one but his spell at Palace is covered in about 3 or 4 pages.

Geoff Thomas wrote "Riding The Storm" (or something like that). Much of it was about his struggle with leukemia and his riding the Tour de France route, but there was Palace stuff in there as well. Very good read.

Sansom didn't devote much more to Palace in his autobiography.

He couldn't wait to get on and talk about the 'Gooners' (ha bloody ha) as he repeatedly loved to call them.

Summary: Don't bother with his book, he comes across as boring and a bit dim. Plus, there's nothing of note for Palace fans.

Avoid.

Geoff Thomas's book is a cut above. It's roughly divided into thirds: on his football career; his battle with illness; and riding the tour. It works really well. It was inspired by Lance Armstrong's book, complete with copycat cover.

I enjoyed Warnock's very much but it tailed off a touch towards the end when talking about the whole West Ham/Tevez affair.

Great little stories about when he was a player and when he was managing in the lower leagues.

Woody and Nord is also very good, and completely shows the two sides of football.

But it's quite difficult to read now considering Gareth thinks that teams like Chelsea should be able to take our youngsters for next to nothing.

I finished Woody and Nord on the day Gareth came out and said its for the good of the game that clubs like Palace get raped for their youth players. Made it all bittersweet, but a very good book all the same.

I've re-read Woody and Nord what with the Euros and what not. It seems to be out of print now which is a shame. Here's a piece I've written on it: To view the link you have to Register or Login
